Journal Jeremiah Cornelius's Journal: Put THAT in your geo-political worldview and smoke it! 11

                living proof here. i enjoyed a high level of suffering or at least thought i did. turns out i was depressed not because of lack of medication but from believing a lie of what i wanted in life vs what i really needed in my life. i wonder how many tears were shed over what i did to like minded sufferers...

                  And that is even without the porn sites.

                  The way I met my wife was through Together, Inc of Oregon, which eventually got bought out by Relationships NW and then by, gasp, eHarmony, and with each iteration their fees went down.
